In the framework of a CEC-DGXVII demonstration project a hygroregulating natural ventilation system is being evaluated in 52 occupied apartments.
Wouters P, Vandaele L
Ventilation performance of a vertical exhaust common-duct installed in a multi-story house was analysed using model experiment and computer simulation.
Murakami S, Yoshino H, Mizutani K, Akabayashi S, Hasegawa K
This paper presents some of the early theoretical work conducted within the framework of a research program aimed at analysing the interaction between gas-fired domestic appliances and the indoor environment in terms of energy consumption, indoor
Fracastoro G V, Masoero M, Mazza E
This paper describes tests of thermal and ventilation performance of two relatively new occupant-controlled localized thermal distribution (also called task ventilation) systems.
Arens E A, Bauman F S, Johnston L P, Zhang H
Pressure models require a good knowledge of the pressure distribution around the building and a precise description of air paths.
Fleury B A
This paper treats the structure of models for predicting interzonal airflow and contaminant dispersal in buildings.
Grot R A, Axley J A
The functional and technical requirements which have been set for ventilation systems in dwelling houses of the future will result in ventilation systems featuring trouble-free and demand-controlled operation.
Kohonen R
With a dynamical model, the thermal behavior of a single office room is simulated.
Braun W
This paper describes the use of tracer-gas techniques to measure airflow in a rectangular duct and a HVAC system.
Riffat S B, Holmes M
Sustained efforts to conserve energy during the last 15 years have taken place at the expense of the indoor environmental quality. Ventilation air volume has been reduced to a minimum.
Flatheim G
A new facility for the study of ventilation in buildings has been recently developed at the University of Basilicata (Potenza, Italy).
Fracastoro G V, Nino E, Coretti G
This paper describes the activity on Air Infiltration and Ventilation of the research group of "Dipartimento di Energetica" in Politecnico of Turin.
Borchiellini R, Cali M
The performance of ventilation provision in subfloor cavities is relevant to the fields of energy efficiency, condensation risk, and air quality.
Edwards R, Hartless R, Gaze A
Keynote speech describes the difficulties of designing air conditioning system with human comfort in mind. Lists design fundamentals for satisfactory indoor air quality, together with a description of some case studies.
Sandelewski A
An investigation has been carried out using computational fluid dynamics methods to study the performance of an air curtain at the door of a heated building.
Lam J K W, Ruddick K G, Whittle G E
The use of computers for data acquisition and analysis in air exchange measurements with tracer gases has become state of the art for the researcher.
Rabenstein R, Heidt F D
A new turbinemeter is developed to be used as a ventilating rate sensor in livestock buildings.
Berckmans D, Vandenbroeck Ph, Goedseels V
An appropriate way to identify the most efficient ventilation systems and improve their design is to use design codes for ventilation rates.
Riberon J, Bienfait D, Barnaud G, Villain J
In an experimental facility, we studied the performance of a task ventilation system designed for use in office buildings.
Fisk W J, Faulkner D, Bauman F S, Arens E A
The predominant route for air movements between the floors of two-storey dwellings is via the stairwell.
Edwards R, Irwin C
